At Stag Lane, we aim for Music learning to be vibrant, ambitious and fun. As well as conventional music theory, our pupils study music from many different genres and cultures, and learn to perform and compose with confidence and finesse. Through a wide range of trips, clubs, workshops, performances and assemblies, we seek to celebrate the diverse talents of all our children and to enrich their musical learning, so that they leave us as enthusiastic and accomplished young musicians.
